A publication of the European Mathematical Society

There is a rich and historical relationship between theoretical
physics and number theory. This volume presents a selection of problems which
are currently in full development and inspire a lot of research. Each
of the seven contributions starts with an introductory survey which makes it
possible even for non-specialists to understand the results and to gain an idea
of the great variety of subjects and techniques used.

Topics covered are: phase locking in oscillating systems, crystallography,
Hopf algebras and renormalisation theory, Zeta-function and random matrices,
Kloosterman sums and the local Langlands correspondence.

Intended for research mathematicians and theoretical physicists as well as
graduate students, this volume gives an overview of recent developments in an
exciting subject crossing several disciplines.
